Registration is now open for the 54th Annual Hayward Air Rally, slated for June 21-23, 2018.
The Hayward Air Rally is a 500-mile VFR cross-country challenge, flown in two legs, starting at the Hayward Airport (KHWD) in California and ending at Reno Stead Airport (KRTS) in Nevada.
Officials note this is not a speed event, but rather a race against your own plan — fuel management and navigation skills determine your score. All types of piston aircraft are eligible to participate.
A generous long-time racer has funded a scholarship to pay the crew entry fees for up to three first time rally crews. We would like to invite any CFIs, student pilots (must fly with a CFI), or flight schools to apply.
You can download the registration documents, pay the entry fees and get hotel reservation information at HWDAirrally.org/entry
Each year, rally proceeds fund up to two EAA Air Academy Scholarships for students.
